a peek into the mind of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

Louie Gohmert managed to disgrace himself on the Hill yesterday by going on a ridiculous tirade about his take on homosexuality in society and his duty, as a faithful representative of the good people of Texas, to make sure that that terrible 10% of the population not receive adequate legal protection from bigots and idiots through hate crime legislation.

Class is in session, Professor Louie, start us out:

If you’re oriented toward animals, bestiality, then, you know, that’s not something that can be used, held against you or any bias be held against you for that. Which means you’d have to strike any laws against bestiality, if you’re oriented toward corpses, toward children, you know, there are all kinds of perversions, […] pedophiles or necrophiliacs or what most would say is perverse sexual orientations but the trouble is, we made amendments to eliminate pedophiles from being included in the definition. [emphasis from ThinkProgress, not me]

Thank God, that in a political landscape where politicians are squabbling over leftover pennies from two wars and a massive bank bailout to bring modern health care to American citizens we have a guy like Louie to provide us all with a moral compass. Yes, thank you Big Lou for perpetuating oh-so-accruate equation of an act between consenting people and violation of non-consenting children and, er, corpses, because that makes sense…

Always one to stay away from hyperbole, Louie had a dire warning for us all:

But people have always been willing to give up their liberties, their freedoms in order to gain economic stability. It happened in 1920 and 1930’s. Germany gave up their liberties to gain economic stability and they got a little guy with a mustache, who was the ultimate hate monger. And this is scary stuff we’re doing here when we take away what has traditionally been an important aspect of moral teaching in America. [again, thanks TP for the emphasis]

Now, if you’re somewhat lost amidst the intellectual density of Professor Lou’s lecture, here’s the raw footage to clear it up:

In Lou’s mind homosexuality is something enabled/created by naive liberals (what with their science an’ a-book lernin’) and that, however unfortunate the outcome of those dastardly blue stater’s misguided creation, it’s up to good, morally grounded folks like Lou Gohmert to amek sure that every American has the right to chase them out of town with pitchforks and torches to an old mill where they’ll be burned alive inside. What I’m saying is that this is Louie Ghomert’s moral America:

    Louie must have some first hand knowledge of bestiality since he likes to brag that he knows so much. He’s as bad as our ex-Senator Rick “Sanatarium”, “Screamer” Santorum who embarassed PA to no end and always brought up bestiality in reference to gays. They are both jerks who like to hate everyone unlike themselves then claim to be so moral. What a bunch of jerks!
